Panthertown Valley- Loop from Salt Rock Gap Trailhead
Beautiful Blue Sky... 59F at start 74F at end .. Hike features 4 nice waterfalls( Frolicktown Falls, Wilderness Falls, Schoolhouse Falls, Warden Falls), nice rock outcroppings with views. The trail are very good , better than average. They were pleasant and clear even at this time when undergrowth hasn’t yet died back. There is only one short stretch of trail , about 0.5 miles , where you are more or less road walking and often exposed to sun . This is right after coming up from seeing Warden Falls

Pantertown Valley Loop (Oct 2015)
Easy to moderate hike. Streams, waterfalls, great views from rock ledges. Nice day hike. Part of this track is missing on the north side of the loop. Accidentally turned off the app on my phone. Power Line Road is the missing portion and is easy to follow.
